Do you ever find yourself in an unexpected reading slump? Feeling slightly down that you can’t join in with your fellow book lovers who are reading the latest release? Or maybe you’re sad that your daily reading routine has changed, either by slowing down or by being non-existent.
It can be easy to feel shame over not reading as much as other people, or not reading at all. I see this conversation sprinkled throughout the book community on blogs and videos every now and again. I wanted to explore this more and discuss the ways I’m filling the book-shaped hole in my heart whilst I ride through my slump.

Hello book lovers! I hope you’re having a great start to the week. I think some Quarantine restrictions are being relaxed soon, therefore I’m hoping this means that I’ll be able to visit my library soon. I rely so much on my libraries to read books every month.

2020 is already turning out to be a different kind of reading year for me. We haven’t reached the end of January and my DNF (stands for: did not finish) tally is at SIX and I’m not mad about it. I don’t know who this new me is, but I like her.
Historically, I’ve never been good at actually utilising my Goodreads to-read shelf for anything other than stockpiling a list of books that look and sound cool. I was a reader who just borrowed books from my library immediately upon watching a booktube video that had praised it.
A few months ago, I changed that habit and actually began to reference my to-read shelf at the beginning of every month. Mostly because I noticed whilst I was favouring new releases, so many books I wanted to read had been put on the back burner.
Which isn’t a bad way to read by any means, but it wasn’t necessarily working out best for me. It’s not like the new releases, with all their hype and praise, were actually turning into 5 star reads. So I decided something needed to change and it started with utilising my Goodreads to-read shelf and have turned into something that’s actually functional.
There are only three tips on this list, all of which helped me achieve several of my own reading goals in 2019. I’m exciting to share these easy tips with everyone, so if you’re looking to elevate your reading and achieve some goals this year, definitely keep on reading!
So I put all my upcoming posts on hold for this because the Shadow and Bone casting has released most of its cast of major characters.
Spoiler alert: i’m really excited. Continue reading “SHADOW AND BONE CASTING REACTION” →
